Hey montenegro1,
What it sounds like is that the problem is not your lens at all it is the contrast of the scene you’re taking a picture of. The contrast between white and black in outdoor scenes is generally too high for either film or digital sensors to capture accurately. The reason your images are almost all white is probably that the camera is overexposing your images. The camera is metering of the dark areas in the scene and trying to expose the image so they are what is called middle gray which is exactly halfway between absolute black and absolute white. To fix this I would purposely underexpose my images by either setting a faster shutter speed than suggested by the cameras meter or a smaller aperture. To do this you are going to have to be in full manual mode unless your camera has exposure compensation. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Why wont my Olympus zuiko 300mm lens zoom to max length?


Most camera's can't focus when the aperture number is above 5,6. Although your tele zoom starts at 4,8, it reaches the 5,6 at about 150 mm. So from there and up it can't auto focus. You still should be able to focus manually, but for wild life or sports pictures, it is useless.

Will the Zuiko 70 - 300mm f/4-5.6 ED lense fit my E520 body?


Yes, no problem at all. The lens is a Four-Thirds mount and that's what your camera is designed to accept.

Can this lens fit an olympus C 5060 ?


No, it will not. The C-5060 does not use interchangable lenses. I cannot tell from the picture that you have attached what cameras this will fit. It it was, in fact made by Olympus, it would appear to belong to their line of 35mm film cameras.

My camera is working again, but the problem is not completely solved. What I did was to put on the old lens, take out the battery then turn on the camera and finally put on the battery again. And now it works. But the problem with the new lens (Zuiko digital 40-150) continues.
